Ladies and Gentlemen, another round of victim blaming….
Tom Joyner Offers Girls Advice on How Not to Get Raped (Sponsored by Proctor and Gamble Everyday): Is Rick Ross His Ghost Writer?

I have to wonder if someone who works for Tom Joyner hates him. Tom Joyner recently wrote an article about sexual assaults on college campuses and it is full of advice to girls about how not to get raped… plus a lot of advice that is probably going to send a few of his listeners to jail for sexual assault:
"Your sons need to read this story and realize that right now they probably can say for sure they’d never sexually assault a woman, but in the wrong environment with the wrong crowd, with the wrong drugs and alcohol, they’re capable of anything. One night of “partying” can bring consequences that will last a lifetime.
Your daughters should read the article too and be warned not to take any drugs or drink alcohol, especially at parties and clubs. They should always attend functions with trusted friends and never be afraid to report a physical assault of any kind. Tom Joyner”
SO let’s see if little Johnny is a rapist, he can blame it on the alcohol, but if little Suzy is raped… she can blame it on herself for not using the buddy system. It couldn’t be that little Johnny is a morally bankrupt predator.
There’s more wisdom from Tom Joyner:
But when drugs and alcohol are part of the equation, it’s even more complicated because the victim and the person perpetrating the act are probably both doing something they never would ordinarily do - Tom Joyner
Oh wow, the rape victim and the rapist bear equal blame for the rapist raping.
Oh there’s more:
It’s more complicated than telling your son “no means no,” because some drugs will cause girls to consent. - Tom Joyner
*head explodes* Oh so an intoxicated or drugged person can’t sign contracts and can’t get married, but they have the capacity to “consent” to being raped.
In other words, men are not responsible for their own penises and at no time are men and boys responsible for raping girls. Apparently Mr. Joyner thinks it’s either the alcohol’s fault for making men rape or the girl’s fault for taking drugs and tricking men into raping her or failing to walk around in public without an escort? No seriously, at least 5 people had to proof this post before it landed on Black America web. Surely SOMEONE was paying attention to the recent Rick Ross controversy and yet, they still published this?
As you know we’ve been criticizing Tom Joyner for bankrolling the lifestyle of Genarlow Wilson, a man who along with a few of his friends videotaped themselves having sexual intercourse with an unconscious 17 year old girl before they dumped her body on a random bathroom floor. Mr Wilson then went to an adjoining hotel room and passed around a 15 year old girl as a “party favor.”
This article explains a great deal about Mr. Joyner’s actions over the past 6 years.
And of course we did notice that the corporation that is paying to publish this rape culture propaganda is Proctor & Gamble. Proctor & Gamble Everyday to be specific. Thanks P&G!
P.S. To girls who are reading this post, the person responsible for rape is ALWAYS the rapist. Don’t let anyone else make you think that you are responsible for the choices and decisions of a rapist. And yes, rape is a choice- it’s not something that a rapist accidently stumbles into unintentionally.
PPS To boys who are reading, I would be offended by Tom Joyner basically saying that if you drink and do drugs you become violent predatory sex offenders.
